Jesus the Hero: A Guided Literary Study of the Gospels (Reading the Bible As Literature) by Leland Ryken
This is the fourth of a six-volume series called Reading the Bible as Literature. This volume on the Gospels continues the tradition of the first three in the series by exploring the intersection of the Bible and literature. Ryken enables pastors, students, and teachers of the Bible to appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of the Gospels and how to interpret them correctly. He goes one step further than merely explaining the literary dimensions of the Gospels - he includes exercises to help students master this rich literary treasure.
